With the writing of this editorial the year's duties as 
an editor have almost drawn to a close. A backward 
look seems the most natural thing. In this issue an in- 
complete review of the year has been written with the 
hopes that it may help to fix a little more definitely the 
memories of the year, to show the advance of the year, 
and in so doing in some little way to stimulate a desire for 
and vision of yet greater things. 

If you think I. W. C. hasn't grown, look over this 
number of the Greetings. Every organization reports 
something accomplished of what they planned in the fall, 
some step made in advance. Every department is a little 
bigger, more comprehensive, than before. If your blood 
has never tingled before because of the conscientiousness 
of growth, throw yourself, with all the enthusiasm which 
spring gives, into some activity and be convinced that 
things have been growing. There's no denying that we 
have a school of which to be proud, so let's one and all 
give nine cheers for the College, our dear old I. W. C.

With this realization of the glories of the past, let us 
press on to still better things. Let us never rest until we 
have THE largest woman's college of the West, the most 
progressive in the land. Now is one of the best times to 
work for such a future, when new girls are looking for a 
school. Again we say, make your summer count! Your 
enthusiasm will have great influence with your friends. 


A torrid Phillipine sun rose one oppressive morning 
in July, 1905, and bent all its energies upon further parch- 
ing the cracked earth. Its light filtered through the split 
bamboo curtain of a little hut out on Marjo street in the 
town of Malco, Luzon, and disturbed the slumbers of an 
American. Anybody would know he was an American 
both from his size and from the fact that he wore pajamas, 
the night dress of his fatherland, even if he was burnt the 
color of a native. The tropical sun had added a walnut- 
mahogany finish to a naturally dark skin. I could hardly 
imagine, as he appeared on the veranda and slouched 
against a post with an aimless air, that he had been con- 
sidered the model soldier in a certain crack regiment in 
the United States cavalry only two years before. 

Three times, I knew, Roger Graves had been deco- 
rated for conspicuous bravery on the battlefield. He 
had been told that if he would acquire the preliminary 
knowledge, he would be recommended for a commission. 
For several months he worked when he had the time. 
He was a Sophomore at Leland Stanford Jr. University 
when some boyish deviltry had brought expulsion and he 
had enlisted to get away from an incensed father. Bui 
before he look the examination the crack Seventeenth 
01 lered to Luzon. Certain wielders of the bolo had 
made themselves obstreperous and to the Seventeenth 
1 the pleasant duty of exterminating them or 
making them good Filpiinoe ,

That evening in the old sergeant's tent I sat staring 
straight out into the jungle. The sun was sinking be- 
hind the low hills to the right. Already the cold damp 
fog was rising from the grass and the green parrots scold- 
ed and fussed in their roosts. The monkeys chattered 
and their peculiar screeches rang out. The scene had 
great fascination to a newcomer, but it did not prevent 
my thoughts from going back to the beautiful old town of 
Maderro, on the eastern slope of the Seirra Madres in Cal- 
ifornia, and a straight, stern-faced old gentleman and an 
elderly lady on the veranda of a beautiful white house at 
the town's edge. I knew they were bent down by secret 
woe and that their eyes were turned that very night to the 
southwest where the Union Pacific came through the 
Ceneras Pass. In my reveries I pictured the grief and 
sorrow the two old people would feel when I would have 
to make my report, and I could see the old gentleman's 
proud features wince when he learned that which I, his 
special envoy, was duty bound to tell. 

1 remembered the little bareheaded boy that scamp- 
ered about the streets of Maderro, leader of the boys in 
his neighborhood, then I pictured him as he appeared the 
night he graduated from high school, straight and clean. 
I was editor of the Maderro Record at the time. I heard 
of him at Berkley and his work on the gridiron, then I 
heard of the hazing of freshmen and his suspension. The 
last time I saw him, he came into my copy room of the 
Chronicle in San Francisco, and leaning against the desk, 

"Tom, loan me a hundred, I'm going to Tampa." 

I would have sold the shirt off my back to help the 
son of that stern old man who used to buy his papers of 
a certain ragmuffin in Maderro, then too he was the son 
of the sweet faced old lady who used to call me into her 
kitchen and feed me, when often I had spent the previous 
night in an ashbarrel.

The sergeant came in from the corrall and pulled up a 
chair and sat down. 

"It's a long tale,' 7 he said after lighting his pipe and 
leaning back, for he knew why I was waiting there. 

"We had landed in Manila and were about as sullen 
as men get. That night after guard mount most of us 
who were free to do so got camp leave and walked over 
to Heurjuo, a town of about seven thousand Spanish and 
French inhabitants and twice that number of half breeds 
and Filpiinos. We all drank some of that stuff called 
mescal and started out to see the town. We saw it all 
right, but when we started for camp, Roger Graves was 
not with us. That night he sneaked guard lines and 
crawled into his -blankets about four in the morning 
Three nights later he deserted guard post and his neigh- 
boring sentry knew it, but never reported. Roger was 
acting very queerly. He refused the examination. His 
term of enlistment was almost up and we all supposed 
he was going back to the States. A few weeks later he 
announced that he was going to quit. The captain 
wanted to know the trouble, but Roger answered that it 
wasn't anybody's business, that he would be nobody's 
hound any more. The captain thought the heat had 
queered the man, so turned to his desk and wrote a check 
for ninety dollars. 'Come with me, Graves, and we'll 
talk it over with the colonel,' he said. The colonel took 
the news calmly and filled out the necessary documents 
to refer the case to the division commandment. The 
next clay Graves got his discharge. 

"We all suspected there was a girl in the case, but 
did not know for sure. That afternoon Roger Graves, 
one of California's finest families, married Juanita in the 
mission church at Malaola. This girl was half native and 
half Spanish, and beautiful as these mixed bloods often 
are. She had eyes like black pansies and her dark oval 
face '. ;i alighl with intelligence, for she had been edu- 
i in a French convent she was taller than the gen-

eral run of Filipino girls and she had a madonna appear- 
ance, but appearance only. She hated Gringoes or 
whites as only her race can. Her Spanish ancestry was 
responsible for her intelligence, and that strain of Filipino 
that led her little brown brothers to chop our sentries to 
mince meat was responsible for the tortures she later sub- 
jected Roger to. 

"Well, to state it briefly, about three days later Roger 
was captured by some bolo men and carried off to the 
hills. Juanita herself brought the news. 

"Company D was ordered into the saddle and gave 
chase, but the trail was hours old. 

"The rainy season let up in June, we shifted camp, 
and occupied a high positron in the southwest of the island 
behind a small stream. A plain lay between the jungle 
and us. The tall grass was the only thing the bolors 
could hide in and we soon burned that off. In all my 
Philippine campaigns I never saw a better camp. 

"One day one of the troopers came back from town 
and said Juanita had left. The only comment was that 
the informant was teased about his design in going around 
to offer consolation to the widow. 

"At three o'clock Monday morning five hundred Fil- 
ippinos rose up, seemingly from the bare earth, and start- 
ed for the sleeping soldiers. It was revolver against 
bolo. We beat them back with a loss, mounted, and 
gave chase as far as we could push our horses. After 
taps that evening young Chalmers came and sat on my 
bunk and told me. he had seen Graves among the natives 
as they took to the jungle. I saw through it all. The 
poor fellow, probably a little touched with the heat, and 
crazy about dusky Juanita, had raised his hand against 
the United States. The two months that followed were 
a constant round of skirmishes. Aguinaldo's little rebel- 
lion was not a circumstance to what our Roger showed 
us. Bolos and fever got in their deadly work. The ene- 
my was learning to shoot with our rifles. 

Page Seven 

QKje College Greeting* 

"Time after time we were aroused by our pickets as 
a covey of Brownies rose from the jungle like a covey of 
quail and sailed into us. Only a Springfield bullet would 
stop them. 

"On the fifteenth of August an envoy with a flag of 
truce was escorted to the colonel's tent. After the weaz- 
ened brown scamp saluted in accepted military style, he 
proceeded to relate that General Senor Graves demanded 
that the Gringoes leave the island or surrender. 

"As soon as the colonel could get his breath he sent 
his compliments to Graves and told the messenger to tell 
him to come in to be hanged within twenty-four hours or 
the Americans would sweep the island clean. The Filip- 
pino departed with a jaunty air. In an hour he was back 
with a letter from Graves who asked to be granted im- 
munity from punishment as a deserter and he would sur- 

"The colonel called all the captains into a consultation 
and they were for refusing any such proposition, but re- 
membrances of what Graves had done soon altered and 
softened their views. Captain Jameson of Company L 
said, 'Graves carried me on his back for half a mile the 
day that piece of shrapnel hit me, but for that I would 
have bled to death before I could have reached a sur- 

"The colonel himself remembered a little affair in 
Tahate where a native with a raised knife suddenly 
crumpled up and fell beneath him. The colonel allowed 
his mind to wander to that hot May morning in '98 in 
Tampa, where he had first seen Graves, where two bullies 
ol the Seventeenth had found themselves no match for 
the white faced recruit who had been the amateur cham- 
pion boxer of the Pacific slope and the best half back that 
had worn a head gear for Stanford in the last decade. 
From that day he was the pride of the Seventeenth, and 
in the six years he had been with the army he had proved 
what he : ;i - made of.

'The council room was a mighty quiet place as those 
stern officers reviewed what they had seen and heard of 
Graves. Pretty soon the colonel spoke, his voice was 
hard and metallic, "Why can't we take him at his terms? ' 
The captains thought the same thing but were afraid to 
say so. 

'That evening Roger and his wife came in. He car- 
ried no arms, and we afterward found he had had never 
fired a shot at our. troops/' 

"So they came in," I ejaculated, "and to what?" 
Did you ever think, colonel, that a bullet might have been

The sun was slowly sinking behind the shelter of the 
woodland hills when Miss Lucy came home. She was 
returning from an interesting and exciting shopping ex- 
pedition at the city. The results of Miss Lucy's shopping 
trips were not only very interesting to herself but equally 
so to the members of the whole community in which Miss 
Lucy had lived since her girlhood. 

She carefully unlocked the door, then cautiously 
crossed the threshold. To be sure, Miss Lucy had lived 
alone for twelve years, long years they seemed to her, 
but in all that time she had never been able to conquer 
that fear she felt upon returning to her cottage after a 
lengthy absence. She always crossed the threshold cau- 
tiously, for, as she herself reasoned, other women had 
big, strong men to protect them, but she had no one, no 
one but her big gray cat, Willie. Now, although Willie 
was a very companionable cat, a very lovable cat, he was 
not a protection, and then too one might as well be care- 
ful, she had read of things in the papers. 

After a careful survey, she was assured that no tres- 
passers had violated the premises. With a sigh of relief 

Page Nine 

®be College <§reettns* 

she deposited her array of bundles upon the table. There 
is something peculiarly satisfying about a large assort- 
ment of neatly tied bundles, especially when one has 
bought and paid for them. Miss Lucy eagerly opened the 
largest and most important bundle of all. "Oh, it is so 
pretty! But what will the Ladies' Aid say when they see 
me come out in a pink silk? I suppose it is rather young- 
ish, but I've always wanted a pink silk like this. Why, 
I was going to be married in a pink silk. Yes, I shall have 
it made up. The Ladies' Aid can talk if they want to, 
and I've noticed they generally want to. u She tossed 
her head independently as she put away her hat and coat. 
Miss Lucy could be very independent when the Ladies' 
Aid was far away. "Yes, I shall have it made up, and I 
shall have a pink rose on my hat. William always liked 
pink roses. Yes, Wil — O dear, that must have been a 
knock." With one despairing backward glance at the 
table Miss Lucy hastened to the door. 

"Oh, how-di-do! Why, it's Annabel, isn't it. Well, 
was there anything you wanted, Annabel?" 

"Yes ma-am, Miss Lucy, I wanted to come in." And 
Annabel came in. Annabel, clad in a stiffly starched blue 
gingham, appeard a very sweet and unobtrusive child, 
that is, she appeared to be, but appearances, as Miss Lucy 
had learned to her sorrow, were frequently deceiving, 
and then Annabel had her mother's eyes. They were 
very much in evidence as she seated herself in one of Miss 
Lucy's big chairs directly behind the bundle-covered table. 
"Well, ain't we been havin' nice weather lately, Miss 

"Yes, very nice." 

"Um — nice weather for going to town." 

"Yes — yes — I — I s'pose your mother is going to the 
Aid meeting tomorrow?" 

"Umhuh. She told me to say something about that. 

it kinda looks as tho' you had been to town. Mamma 

said she thought it was you. 'Sped you saw lots of gro- 

Page Ten 

®fje College Greeting* 

ceries at the stores, lots of gum groceries and candy gro- 
ceries, I mean. Oh, no. Mamma said you always got 
your groceries at Montgomery Ward's store, don't you, 
Miss Lucy? " 

"Yes, Annabel." 

"But mamma said she s'posed you'd be buying lots of 
fine clothes now." 

"Why, Annabel?" 

"Cause Mr. William Carter has come back. Mamma 
said that when you was a young girl you was a goin' to 
marry Mr. William Carter, but your folks wouldn't let 
you. My, I just bet you if I wanted to marry Mr. William 
Carter I just would anyhow, 'cause Mr. William Carter 
is rich, he is. Oh! Miss Lucy, I just bet you don't know 
what my papa says. My papa is such a funny man. 
Miss Lucy, honest Injun now, did you truly name that big 
torn cat of yours after Mr. William Carter? " 

"Why — why, you ain't sick, are you, Miss Lucy? 
Why, you look just like mamma does when she has a 
headache. You ain't sick, are you, Miss Lucy? " 

Miss Lucy truly did look ill; she recovered herself with 
an effort. "No — Oh! on, child. Just tired. Now that 
you speak of it I remember my poor Willie cat hasn't had 
his supper. I haven't seen him since I've come home. 
It's getting dark, isn't it? Time for children — I might 
go a little ways with you, Annabel." 

As Annabel neared the door which Miss Lucy had 
opened for her, she turned for one last long look at the 
table. "Say, Miss Lucy, you see that pink a-stickin' out 
from undernearth that paper, is that sateen or silk? You 
see, mamma will want to know." 

Miss Lucy's blue eyes flashed with indignation. She 
spoke slowly and distinctly. "You may tell your mother, 
Annie-bell, that is is pink silk and that I am going to have 
a dress made out of it, and that I am not going to the 
Ladies' Aid meeting tomorrow, she will have to find a 
ride with somebody else. Now, good night!" 

Page Eleven 

Wbt College Greeting* 

"Good night," said Annabel. A very subdued Anna- 
bel went home. 

She had left Miss Lucy, however, in an entirely differ- 
ent mood. Her anger, righteous as it had been, was only 
a sham to cover -a deeper feeling. As she walked slowly 
about her yard in search of her pet cat, her thoughts were 
with the joys and sorrows of her girlhood. "He hasn't 
come back, I know he hasn't come back. It's too good 
to be true. Her mother just put her up to say it. It's 
like her, never minding her own business. If folks could 
take a lesson from my Willie, even if he is a cat, they'd 
be a lot more agreeable to neighbor with. But I wonder 
where he can be. Willie! Willie! Willie!" No faint 
meow broke the stillness of the gathering gloom. "He 
must have gone into those woods and got caught in those 
awful Smith boys' traps! Oh, dear! O dear! It's get- 
ting late, but I'll light my lantern. I'm not afraid 

She returned to the cottage, lighted her lantern and 
started swiftly in the direction of the woods. A great 
calm had fallen over the timberland, a hush as though all 
nature were listening. Miss Lucy's timid footsteps made 
bold sounds among the startled leaves. Ordinarily she 
would never have ventured even with the friendly aid of 
the lantern, but tonight she had little idea of fear. 

"Oh, I must find him. O if I should lose Willie! 
Willie, Willie, Willie, Willie, Willie, Willie!" The sound 
of her own voice gave her fresh courage. She walked 
further into the gloomy depths of the woods. "Willie, 
Willie, Willie, Willie, Willie, Willie!" She was ap- 
proaching the old oak tree where in happier years she 
had been accustomed to meet young William Carter. 
How swiftly her feet had flown down the old path. Then 
life had been joyous, blithe and free, Bui now — 

"WllOOOOO! whooooo! whooo 000 000 !" 

"Oh dear! Oh! Oh clear! Only a little screech owl 
all alone just like me. I've heard them all my life but 

Page Twelve 

Qflfje College (greetings 

they do startle one. And my lantern gone out — Willie 
lost. Oh! I must find Willie. I can't go back alone. 
Willie! Willie! Willie!" 

"Yes, Lucy, I'm coming. Don't be afraid, little girl." 
William Carter emerged v from the shadow of the old oak 

Perhaps it was because of the great fright which Miss 
Lucy had undergone, perhaps it was because of the asso- 
ciations of former years, but whatever it was, without 
hesitation Miss Lucy accepted the shelter of two protecting 
arms even as in the days of old. 

"Oh, William, William! It's true, then, you have 
come back!" 

"Oh, little girl, — to think, to dream that I should find 
you in the same old place! Lucy, little girl, I've come 
and I'm going back again if you will go with me." 

"Yes, William." Miss Lucy did not bemoan the loss 
of the lantern at that moment. 

"Meaow, meaow, meaow." 

"Why — Oh! there's Willie. I had forgotten. Come, 
kitty, kitty, kitty!" 

"This is my cat, Willie — perhaps you heard me call 
him. I thought he was lost, but now I've found you 

"We're both your possessions." 

"And I'm so happy, William. I'm right glad I got 
that pink silk." 

"The what?" 

"You'll see that later, William," she said, as she 
walked slowly homeward with William Carter at her side. 
Willie, the cat, followed meekly. In the heart of Miss 
Lucy there was a great peace.

The College of Music has taken a long step forward 
in arranging for the granting of a degree of Bachelor of 

Page Thirteen 

W$t College (greetings 

Music on the same basis as the Bachelor of Arts degree in 
the College of Liberal Arts, namely, that of one hundred 
and twenty hours credit. By doing this it places itself in 
the front rank of progressive schools of music, recogniz- 
ing the necessity for a broad education as well as an ex- 
tensive music education. The students enrolling for this 
degree have the same classification as students for the A. 
B. degree and must present the same entrance require- 

On Thursday afternoon, April 15, occurred the grad- 
uating recital of Miss Ima Berryman, senior in voice and 
a pupil of Mrs. Hartmann. Miss Berryman's work was 
a thorough understanding of the material presented, and 
characterized by beauty of tone, good vocal production, 
a charming stage presence. She was ably assisted at the 
piano by Miss Deane Obermeyer. 

For the first time in three years the College has had 
an orchestra and all year this organization with about 
twenty players has met on Thursday evenings for re- 
hearsal under Mr. Stearns' direction. A number of stan- 
dard works for orchestra have been studied and very sat- 
isfactory progress has been made. The orchestra will 
be heard in a concert before the end of the year, as well 
as assisting at one or two events. 

This year the college has supported two Glee Clubs. 
Though not departmental, the clubs have been under the 
leadership of members of the College of Music faculty, 
Miss Miller training the College Glee Club and Miss De- 
m ut h the Academy Glee Club. 

The Madrigal Club has appeared a number of limes 

'.itli unvarying success. They have sung at the Sunday 

evening vesper services al the college, at the evening 

ol Grace Methodist, Centenary Methodist ami the

The College of Music is looking forward to a largely 
increased enrollment n£xt year. The course leading to 
the degree of Bachelor of Music is meeting with enthus- 
iastic response from many who are planning to attend 
school here. A number of new courses have been added 
to the curriculum and the certificate course in musical 
proficiency has been revised and strengthened. The fac- 
ulty have been heard in a number of concerts in the sur- 
rounding towns, as well as in a number of appearances 
in Jacksonville, everywhere meeting with great success. 


The interest shown in the Home Economics Depart- 
ment typifies the general atmosphere of the college. For 
the appreciation of this department found among all of 
the girls is shown by the vivacious chatter which floats 
down the long corridors to the silent observer. Home 
Economics is not an exclusive course, for many girls who 
are majoring the Liberal Art courses are also taking the 
various subjects of this department. 

New equipment is continually being added, which al- 
ways leads to more efficient work. One new and very 
profitable development of the work in the Domestic Sci- 
ence is the demonstrations which the advanced students 
are handling effectually. Practical subjects are used such 
as meat substitutes, vegetables, beverages, croquettes and 
deserts. The embroidery and millinery has been made a 
separate course in the Household Art this year and thus 
more time and interest can be given to them. Much more 
emphasis has been placed upon practice teaching and the 
girls have entered into this work most heartily since it 
affords them experience as well as confidence in their 
ability to competently plan work for others.

An organization destinct from all other social organ- 
izations of the college was formed this year and since it 
was a result of this department it received the name of 
"The Home Economics Club." The purpose of the club 
is to study certain topics of special interest which cannot 
be taken up in the various classes. A few of the very 
interesting topics have been: canning clubs, extension 
work, farmers' institute work, school luncheons, garden- 
ing, school gardens and the beautifying of country school 
-rounds. The girls have entered enthusiastically in all 
of the phases of the development of the club as shown 
by the lively stunt which they gave directly after the 
club was organized and the active interest portrayed at 
all the regular meetings.

The part of Coryphaens will be taken this year by Miss 
Romaine Loar. The members of the chorus are Misses 
Alexander, Allen, Applebee, Bigger, Cox, Franchen, 
Goldsmith, Onken, Osburn, Robb, Spencer, Towle, Wil- 
kinson, Wesphal, and Wylder. 

The music written for the Antigone by Mendelsohhn 
will be used. Mr. Stearns is arranging the music and di- 
recting the chorus in the choral odes. Miss Julia Herren 
of Chicago has charge of the choral evolutions. 

The costumes and staging have been made as nearly 
historically correct as possible. In accordance with the 
ancient Greek custom the play will be given in daylight 
and in the open air. The modern elevated stage is not 
used but an orchestra circle on the level ground, forty 
feet in diameter. The back scene represents the front of 
the royal palace of Thebes. By a convention of the Greek 
stage, persons supposed to come from the town or har- 
bor enter at the spectator's right. Those from the coun- 
try at the left. 

In connection with this production, it is interesting 
to note that the Woman's Peace Party has turned to the 
Greek (lr;un;l in order to present their cause as graphi-

cully and beautifully as possible. For twenty weeks the 
Little Theatre Company of Chicago will travel about the 
country presenting Euripides' "Trojan Women" in order 
to bring the horrors of warfare as vividly as possible be- 
fore the people of tod&y. 








Did you hear it? 
Twenty-four. That 
meant the Juniors who 
returned last fall 
Twenty-four girls full 
of enthusiasm for their 
college and their class. 
They started to use 
their spirit on an an- 
nual. No one who was 
not a Junior, or a Jun- 
ior class officer, will 
ever know how many 
hours were spent in trying literally to squeeze out an 1 111- 
woco staff that would come within the regulations. En- 
thusiasm, turned by necessity from literary pursuits, was 
used in helping make the Lake Mantanzas trip the success 
it was, and in giving a reception to the Freshmen. An 
account of the Juniors would be incomplete without the 
name of Miss Jennie Anderson, who has always found 
time to help her class in whatever it has undertaken. A 
delightful party given by Miss Anderson to the Juniors at 
Thanksgiving time was followed closely by the Junior- 
Senior dinner at Colonial Inn. 

The Juniors had a chance to show their class spirit 
at the essay contest, and they claim they ought to be 
proud of themselves. Did they not come off with flying 
banners and two prizes?

Wfje College (greeting* 

The class of 1916 were sure that they had a really 
true sister class after a very greatly enjoyed evening 
spent with the Freshmen. A better proof of the loyalty 
of the class of 1918 could not be asked for. 

No Junior at I. W. C. would feel that her life was 
complete without the Senior-Junior reception, and it is 
safe to say that there is not a Junior who will ever forget 
the event looked forward to for months. 

It may be that the college has heard of a Junior bas- 
ketball team. Indeed there is one. The Juniors expect 
to win the tournament, too — next year, if not this. 

This much has the class of 1916 accomplished, but 
moreover it has well-grounded hopes for a good showing 
on Field Day, and for a class of twenty girls, next fall, to 

Nineteen, Nineteen Sixteen, 
Hurrah, comrades, for our class. 


The opening of school 
last fall saw the major- 
ity of the class of '1 7 
back at I. W. C. with its 
well known enthusiasm 
and loyalty. We've 
been much in evidence 
all year, especially at 
the time of the Matan- 
zas mystery. Everyone 
knew something was in 
the air when we all ap- 
peared in chapel in our 
re 1 and white, wearing such mottos as "Blow Your Morn, 
Kid," and "1 Look Good to Me." All was excitement 
until at the College Sing the next night, by general vote, 
it was decided that Barbara Weber was the prettiest, Mary

Harrison the wittiest, and Marie Louise Witbeck "the one 
we love best." 

We were delighted to hear that Miss McLaughlin was 
to be our Sophomore class officer. The class election was 
soon held, when Mary Harrison was elected president, Jo- 
hanna Onken, vice-president, Genevieve Dague, secre- 
tary, and Pauline Herrmann, treasurer. The Sophomores 
have been well represented in all college activities, having 
representatives on the Students' Council, the Athletic 
Staff, the Y. W. C. A. Cabinet, and many other organiza- 

On one of the Thursday stunt nights, with a fitting 
program of essays and orations, we presented our new 
red and white 1917 banner. Miss McLaughlin entertained 
the class at a delightful informal party in Expression Hall, 
when we had fun making up songs and yel^s for the es- 
say contest. 

January 1 6th was the night of the essay contest be- 
tween the Juniors and Sophomores. We had four con- 
testants — Winifred Robison, Marjorie Brown, Grace Hel- 
ler and Edith Sawyer. We could hardly wait to sing "Yip 
for 17," "Poor 16," "On, On, Sophomores," and the 
rest of our "gingerie" songs and yells. We did not win 
either of the prizes but we had fun and we are looking 
forward to next year. 

This spring we have been interested in basketball. We 
began by beating the Freshmen and the team has done 
good work in the tournament. With spring have come 
picnics, also. Our president started the fashion by en- 
tertaining the class at a breakfast at Nichols' Park. After 
walking two and a half miles those bacon-and-egg sand- 
wiches sure did taste good. 

At the party that we gave the Seniors some of us re- 
turned to our girlhood and "boyhood" days at the dis- 
trict school, and guests and all "saw themselves as oth- 
ers saw them" when their baby pictures were thrown on 
the screen.

There are only a few more weeks for us to beSopho- 
mores so we are going* to make the most of them in get- 
ting ready to be the "peppy" class of '17 when we are 
Juniors that we have been as Freshmen and Sophomores. 

In the College Song Contest, Winifred Robison was 
awarded first prize by the faculty committee of judges, 
thus bringing honor to her class. 

Last September 
group of ununited and 
disorganized Freshmen 
entered 1. W. C. Some 
of them came because 
they were sent, some 
cause it was what oth- 
ers were doing, and 
some because they 
wanted a taste of real 
college life — wanted it 
so badly that nothing 
could have kept them 
away. The first few weeks we were very much awed by 
the strangeness of our new surroundings. We trembled 
before the mighty looking Senior and scringed under the 
sarcastic remarks of the Sophomore. It is to those de- 
lightful people — the Juniors — that we owe our salvation, 
for they took us under their wing and carried us safely 
over that "new feeling" that threatened to take all the 
ure from our college life. 
No matter with what views and purposes we came, 
believe they have been changed. Before, we saw 
the individual rather than the community; we thought 
"1 i as an oracle to be consulted on all subjects, 

and we vtxt ure thai the world could not be run without 
U In this Freshman year we have learned how insignifi- 

J wfjnty-two , J 

®be College (greeting* 

cant we are alone, but yet we have gained some concep- 
tion of what an important unit we are in the organization 
of college life. We have a great deal more respect for the 
ideas of others and we hope more true respect for our 
own. s 

It is with pleasure that we look back over the year. 
It is not the pleasure of contentment or even satisfaction, 
but rather of the little joys and delights, the associations 
and friendships, and the words and the duties that we 
treasure as our reminiscences. 

For the future we can have only one desire — to make 
it better than the past. Let us each have a determination 
to go into the future as we have gone into our college ac- 
tivities — to win. Let the ideals and hopes of the Fresh- 
man class be those of next year's Sophomore class. With 
an ever-increasing conception of life and broadening of 
view, let us come back next fall determined upon some 
particular goal, giving our support to every college ac- 
tivity, and with a desire to make our Alma Mater larger 
and finer by our having been a part of it. 

The year is coming to an end, 

Now backward, Freshmen, let us turn! 

What have we said, our help to lend? 

What have we done, our joys to earn? 

May all these memories, ever dear, 

Be thoughts to treasure with the year. 

Make of the future more than the past, 

'Tis ours to squander, or to live. * 

Let each of us surmount our task 

As fully now our hearts we give. 

Let each determine, with great zeal, 

To speak with boldness what we feel.

Strains of music, 
daubs of paint — these 
are only hints of what 
the College Specials do 
with their time during 
school hours. Busy as 
bees are they, concern- 
ed with what the great 
masters were striving 
for and what they left 
for study and enjoy- 
ment. So, from first to 
last, this side of the 
class life is clearly manifested — but play also has time 
to assert itself. 

With glee did the supporters of the lavender and white 
wend their way to the gymnasium, where amid many en- 
thusiastic rooters they gave their yells and claimed the 
victory rightly due. Academy, Freshmen and Sopho- 
mores, each in turn have surrendered the flag of truce 
to the 

"Re, ri ra, go, 

College Specials! 

Go — Go." 

Just as athletics has its share in their realm, so, in the 
lovely springtime, the call of the violets (the class flower) 
charms them to the woods, where, over a crackling, spit- 
ting fire they cook the most luscious supper ever served in 
the presence oi Mother Spring. Even the rain drops fall- 
ing gently during the procedure do not drive the merry- 
makers I. W. C.-ward.

Qtfje College Greetings; 

We have, this year, pledged ourselves to do all we can in 
helping to make the college what it should be. A spirit 
different from that which has prevailed heretofore is now 
actuating the Academy with a sense of new duties and 

We now are organized as a united body instead of re- 
maining as separate classes. We believe that we will be 
able to accomplish more by working together as a whole. 
We have our own proctor and proctor board and are 
proud of the competent way in which our proctor has 
taken up her new duties. Mistakes have, of course, been 
made, but we often profit more by our mistakes than by 
our successes. Our judgment certainly has become much 
surer during the last few months, and the Academy is ad- 
justing itself to the new order in a most satisfactory way. 

One organization of the school in which we are able 
to display our abilities is the Dramatic Club, essentially a 
college organization. Six of its members are from the 
Academy. The Academy Glee Club, too, organized only 
this year, is a source of pride and satisfaction to us. 

Little need to be said about our standing in athletics. 
The Academy basketball team now holds second in the 
tournament. On Field Day, if it is still necessary to prove 
to our older sisters that we are full of "pep," that proof 
with be forthcoming. 

With our activity along literary and athletic lines, the 
social side is not neglected. The good times we have 
together are thoroughly enjoyed by all. Our first picnic 
took place last fall out at the Gravel Springs, west of 
Jacksonville. The backward party which was the occa- 
sion of a great deal of jollity and laughter, was a success 
in affording still another opportunity for the members of 
the different classes to become better acquainted. We 
are now enthusiastically planning for the last social event 
of our season, an I. W. C. "Monday Picnic," to be held at 
the park.

Some of us who have known the beginnings of the 
Students' Association have been especially impressed by 
its rapid growth in power. The College Council, the 
Student House Government, were very real, vital organi- 
zations. It was not, however, until the installation of the 
officers of the completed association on Nov. 28, 1914, 
that most of the student body felt and respected their own 
power and obligation. The officers especially of the 
Association have had almost a year in which to study 
our situation and to appreciate the value of self govern- 
ment. Although they have devoted sincere effort toward 
performing their various duties as officers, there is not 
one of them who feels satisfied with her own efforts. It 
is this higher feeling of dissatisfaction that keeps us grow- 
ing, whether we are in college or out of it. The person- 
nel of the Proctor Board is constantly changing, and yet 
the six weeks that constitute a proctor's term of office 
give her especial opportunity for examining problems at 
first hand. In very few cases has it failed to be true that 
a girl who has once been a proctor has an added sense of 
her obligations to her associates. Once recognizing the 
demands of community and the opportunities for growth 
in it, there can be no sitting back with folded hands to 
wait for the next thing to happen. "Satisfaction with 
present attainment is the cause of all decline," says Bay- 
ard Taylor. Then thank fortune for our dissatisfaction! 

The student body has responded nobly to most things; 
it always does, in support of things black and white — cele- 
brations, May Day, Easter recess, etc. — but those of less 
vivid tone, but infinitely more effective and far reaching 
in their consequences, have been easy to disregard. 
"Responsibility" has become almost as threadbare as 
"Pep," and some complain of its over use. "Civic Con- 
;" has been suggested, and it does seem to con- 
vey ignificance. Perhaps we cannot find a term 
acceptable to all until we have the attitude itself, and as 

r I u f-nty-Hix 

®f)e College (greetings; 

a whole we have not yet true feelings of "responsibility," 
nor have some of us "Civic Consciousness." If we have 
any self respect, let us once for all, at the end of this fine, 
successful trial year, put aside any squeamishness and do 
our part in the Association. If we have information our 
officers should know, let us not make the mistake of 
thinking we are being square and loyal to our friends by 
keeping it to ourselves. There can be true loyalty to 
friendship only when based upon a larger sense of loyalty 
and honor. 

It has been with heartiest interest and enjoyment that 
we have taken up the work this year, but next year and 
even after, we want greater interest, more wholesome 
co-operation, more efficient officers, more alert students, 
and — may we say — more purposeful dissatisfaction with 
our attainments. Our sincerest wishes for next year's 
success! We really are launched on our career, and if 
every one of us supplies motive power of some sort, there 
is no reason why we cannot travel fast enough to engrave 
the potent word "Honor" across our College Shield. We 
shall do it because of our Faith in ourselves, each other, 
and the College; because of the Knowledge of our prob- 
lems and the realization that their solution rests with us; 
and because of individual response to the demand for

"One hundred Freshmen for 1915-16" has been the 
slogan all year. By the way, don't forget that every 
student is ipso facto a member of the Boosters' Commit- 
tee. When we have those 100 Freshmen next year, we 
shall be repaid for the cases of writer's cramp that we 
have on record. 

Three hundred or more letters have been sent out by 
students, with the "Student Activities" folder enclosed. 

Page Twenty-seven 

W$t College (greetings; 

It has been a lot of work, but the good returns have made 
it worth while. In addition to this special correspond- 
ence, we are hoping to have next fall, Freshman Hand- 
books, with which to present the incoming class. 

We want even more Boosters next year. Next year 
we'll all be saying "200 Freshmen for 1916-17," and 
we'll have them — if we go after them! 


The Athletic Associ-

deal more than we 
think of at first and just 
that you may see it in

And the Hike Clubs do hike — doesn't spring weather 
make you feel like it? Picnics, tramps — you know. The 
first contest lasted two months and of the five clubs, 
Wilma Cox's won with a record of 245 miles. The van- 
quished entertained the victors at a taffy pull. The sec-

and the Academy won from the Freshmen and Sopho-

the Juniors meet the other teams, and the Sophomores 
and Freshmen play. The winning class in the basketball 
contest will have its name engraved on the beautiful shield 
presented to the association by Mr. Bassett last fall, and 
will hold that trophy until another class takes it from 

And now we want to talk about Track Day, May 3rd. 
This is the big day of spring athletics and a day full of 
jolly fun. The events will be much the same as those of 
last year and of course there will be a lot of excitement 
and pep. We suggest that everyone even considering 
entrance begin to train AT ONCE, and that there be a 
good representation from all the classes. 

So, you see, the Athletic Association has been very 
busy and has occomplished things and each year will see 
it doing more and athletics becoming more important 
in our college life.

The following report does not attempt to cover the 
work of every committee but rather to suggest the gen- 
eral character of the year's work in the Association up 
to May 1st. 

Especial praise is due the Religious Meetings Com- 
mittee for the planning of thirty-one splendid services. 

The Missionary Committee has provided $60 for the 
support of Miss Jane Ward in Shanghai, and $20, a half 
scholarship, for little Fujie Nematsu at Aayama, Japan. 
It has planned the topics for missionary discussions on 
Sunday afternoon, and has conducted the following study 

'immigrant Forces" — Alice Tombaugh, leader.

"The Challenge of the Country" — Barbara Weber, 

"Overtaking the Centuries" — Ola Wendel, leader. 

"The Young Working Girl" — First semester, Miss 
Robinson; second semester, Miss Miller, leaders. 

A class for "Eight Week Club" leaders is now being 
started. The Department of Social Service is one which, 
in our association as in those of all colleges, is becoming 
of vast importance. This year our college girls have 
spent over S60 through this committee for Thanksgiving- 
baskets, boots and mittens for the open air school, baby 
clothes, etc. There have been free night classes started 
for the maids from the cottage, in singing, basketball and 
gymnasium, sewing and cooking, led by Ima Berryman, 
Marie Louise Witbeck, Feril Hess, Miriam Anderson and 
the girls of the advanced Household Science and Arts 
classes who have done in this way their practice teaching 
under the direction of Miss Walker and Miss Leicht. This 
is only a beginning for extension work which may be en- 
larged upon as opportunity opens. The Service Circle 
represents the theoretical phase of this type of work. 
This year we have studied a very practical book by Hen- 
derson and the monthly meetings have been exceedingly 

The treasurer tells us that there are still 2 7 members 
who have not paid their dues and the Systematic Giving 
Committee reports $57 yet to be received from pledges. 
We have paid #100 on the scholarship so that there re- 
main- £575 yet to be paid on the principle. All pledges 
;hould conic in immediately. 

The Social and Finance Committee has done some 
very capable work this year. The Y. W. C. A. party in 
the fall, the Cornival, the Christmas Bazaar, the April 
Breakfast, and the innumerable pie sales, are well remem- 
bered by us all.

The accompanying 
graph is plotted to show 
the respective amounts 
spent by six typical 
Freshmen for two 
equally voluntary lines 
of expenditure during 
the first semester. The 
upper curve represents 
the cost of "eats" and 
entertainments, such as 
spreads, picnics, "under p 
cover," etc.; and the 

lower curve, the amount contributed to the Y. W. C. A. 
and the church. It is surprising to note that in no in- 
stance does the lower line meet the upper one, and that 
in the case of the highest expenditure for "eats" $10, no 
money was recorded for benevolent purposes. This 
seems like a glaring evidence of selfishness; but such lack 
of balance easily results from having no plan for spend- 
ing one's allowance. It must be remembered that the 
accounts of Freshmen alone were considered, and possi- 
bly those of the upper classmen would show a more favor- 
able proportion. Doubtless some who have kept no per- 
sonal account might be embarrassed to find upon investi- 
gation an even greater divergence in their lines. Watch 
for the Y. W. C. A. Personal Account Books, which will 
be for sale at the Information Desk next fall; buy one, 
and then you can plan so that, if your expense account 
is plotted next year, the two curves will coincide.

The members of the German Club were the guests 
of Mrs. Hartmann in her studio on Monday, April 19. 

This was the last meeting of- the year, and the oppor- 
tunity to hear the German songs was greatly appreciated. 
Mrs. Hartmann gave delightful selections by Schumann, 
Schubert, Brahms, Strauss and others, and her audience 
was an enthusiastic one. 

Another meeting particularly enjoyed was held at 
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Stearns. Margaret Goldsmith 
gave a talk on Weimar and showed pictures of Goethe's 
home and other interesting places there. Real German 
refreshments were served. Of special note was the big 
German cake wtih the unusual decorations on the icing. 
German songs were sung, as it has been one of the aims 
of the club through the year to learn the most familiar 
German songs. Various subjects have been discussed 
at the meetings and each has given an added opportunity 
to get a better insight into the thought and customs of 
Germany and its present day life. 


March 2 7, the Sautrday evening before the spring

Belles Lettres wishes to thank Miss Knopf for the use 
of the art studio for meetings while the art exhibit was

We had so much fun at our vagabond party last fall 
that, as it is picnic time again, we are looking forward to 
another one soon. We intend having some kind of a 
picnic or party every week from now on. The first one 
was a breakfast one morning at East Woods. 

A party has been planned for Saturday, April 24, as 
a reunion of the society with our former town members. 
Over forty guests are expected. 

The society received the following announcement 
from a Bloomington paper: 

"Mrs. Savillah Wyatt Latham, widow of the late Col. 
Latham, founder of Lincoln, 111., and a great friend of 
President Lincoln, is dead. Mrs. Latham was known for 
philanthropic work, having given much to Lincoln Col- 
lege which her husband founded."

were thirty-two alumnae and former students present who 
live in or around St. Louis. Dr. and Mrs. Harker and 
Miss Neville represented the college, and Miss Feril Hess 
and Miss Alma Harmel were delegates from Phi Nu and 
Belles Lettres societies.

Everyone told why they were glad they were Wom- 
an's College girls and although the answers were varied 
the gladness was the predominant note. Talks were given 
by various members, telling of the college today and as 
it used to be. Then all the college songs were sung be- 
fore the meeting adjourned. 

The following officers were elected for the coming 
year: President, Mrs. Sanders; secretary-treasurer, Alice 

The executive committee has decided this year to ex- 
tend with special emphasis an invitation to the non-grad- 
uate former students of the college to join with the alum- 
nae in the annual reunion. As only a limited list of non- 
graduates, with addresses that are reliable, is at hand, all 
who receive this message are asked to pass the invitation 
along, and also send to the secretary names and addresses 
of those whom they wish to have notified. The com- 
mittee wish all I. W. C. women to feel that this is a "get- 
together call" summoning you from far and near to come 
and renew your touch with the college. 

The annual reunion of alumnae and former students 
will be held on Monday afternoon, May 31, at 3 o'clock, 
followed by dinner at C o'clock. Class reunions can be 
planned for the noon hour either on Monday or Tuesday 
and should include the classes of 1914, 1912, 1910, 1905, 
19oo, 1895, 1890,1865, or any others that wish to ar- 
range a meeting for this year. 


Monday, April 19, Mrs. Hartmann gave a program of 
German ongs lor the German Club. The girls said it 

a lovely way to enjoy German. 

Winifred Burmeister and Marjorie Brown have al- 
lured positions lor next year. Other expect-to- 
be-teachers are busy with large correspondence.

®be College (greeting* 

All important is each mail 
To the Senior lassie; 

For maybe this one will not fail 
To offer a position quite classy. 
Maybe this one will at last 

Say: "You have been elected," 
Then forgot will be the past 

Altho' some man may be connected. 
English, Math and French and Psych 
Of course you will be expected 
To teach; nor will be excepted 

Spelling and Art and How to Hike. 
At once would this place be accepted, 

For is not seventy-five a month to be collected? 

Summer has come! Girls have actually been seen 
studying on the campus. However, most visits to the 
campus have been due to other attractions. Also there 
is another proof: Early rising has become a common 
complaint. Ornithology trips and just plain walks before 
breakfast are quite noticeably in vogue, especially to the 
neighbors below and beside the aspirants for knowledge 
and slim figures. 

A few days before Easter the town girls gave an "At 
Home" to the faculty in the Expression Studio. The 
usual businesslike appearance of the studio had given way 
to one far more festive and homelike under the hands of 
the girls. Each guest on entering was given a rose as a 
favor. A short informal program was given. After sev- 
eral piano numbers and readings, the dignity of the fac- 
ulty was so far put aside that each guest joined in a search 
after Easter eggs. Light refreshments were served. Not 
only did the afternoon give both faculty and students the 
opportunity of seeing each other in a relation different 
from that of the class room, but enabled many who do not 
meet in the class room to become acquainted. 

Miss ChasselPs father spent Sunday, April 18th, here.

Eloise Strubinger, a former I. W. C. girl, made a few 
hours visit April 1 9th. 

Marian Jane Robison has returned after having spent 
a few weeks at home with an unwelcome visitor — the 

Miss Chassell has accepted a position as a teacher in 
the summer school of Coe College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. 

In response to numberous requests Miss Chassell gave 
a series of mental efficiency tests last Saturday evening. 
About twenty-five faculty members and students were 
present. The tests given were those principally intended 
to test originality of mental powers, some of them being 
devised by Miss Chassel herself, and others being adapted, 
but all of them being taken from Miss ChasselPs thesis. 
A comparison of the work of those who remained to 
check up afterward showed some very interesting results.
